Great, just great.
Another interesting thread on the brain requiring sound.
didnt make it pass the intro
"A male baboon named Sherlock sat on a cliff, unable to take his eyes off his favorite female, Cybelle, as she foraged far below. Each time Cybelle approached another adult male, Sherlock froze with tension, only to relax again when she ignored a potential rival. Finally, Cybelle glanced up and met his gaze. Instantly Sherlock flattened his ears and narrowed his eyes in what baboon researchers call the come-hither face. It worked; seconds later Cybelle sat by her guy, grooming him with gusto."
Continued: weeks later Cybelle asks Sherlock for his credit card and from then on the relationship goes downhill, particularly when Cybelle finds out that Sherlock is a compulsive gambler and womanizer. lol

You offer an actual refutation, or just your affirmation?
I submit that love can be quite irrational; simply ask all observers to consider their past loves and explain the rationality behind each
